Issues I address in adult dogs:

 

  • Loose lead, heel walk 
  • Anxiety, Fears and Phobias
  • Jumping Up
  • Effective recall
  • Impulse control

                                                                           One-to-one puppies up to 5 months


  • This environment allows unvaccinated puppies to start training as early as possible because 5-12 weeks of age is the most powerful learning time in your dogs' life. Starting early is also important to prevent bad habits from developing.


  • We will do exercises both at home and outside to ensure your puppy is learning adequately without and with distractions. I will assist you with support on toilet training, crate/pen training, general 'Raising a Socially Competent Dog' exercises and troubleshooting. You will receive a PP presentation and a weekly task based training plan with the set of exercises to prepare prior to the first session. 


  • Apart from one-to-one training, you will receive follow-up tasks to do and play with your puppy so he/she can learn effectively. There is also text/email support offered. I look into family context, puppy breed and individual characteristics to adapt training techniques.


  • You can decide how many follow-up sessions you need.


  • Follow-up sessions are 45 min long to cater for puppies' attention span.


  • Some of the exercises addressed in my training are effective recall, walk on a loose lead, drop, touch, sit, down/settle, stand, stay, wait, heel with distractions and much more when needed.


  • I also give advice on creating safe and enriching environment for your pet's wellbeing and how to bond so your pet is focused on you yet not insecurely attached. 

                                  One-to-one adolescent puppies


  • Puppies generally reach adolescence at around six months and the phase lasts until they’re around 12–18 months.


  • Some dogs may become wayward or anxious while others show not much change in their behaviour. This is only a temporary stage and the best way to experience it is to be patient and continue with consistent training.


  • The most common issues in adolescent puppies are loss of recall, destructiveness, anxious reactions, other animal chasing or inappropriate interaction with other dogs. These can be addressed by using variable techniques and rewards your dog values to stimulate motivation and create exercise as fun time. 


Puppy training in Bristol
  • I will speak to you over a phone, email you a training questionnaire to obtain as much information on your dog as possible. 
  • I will email you a detailed training programme with a set of homework exercises, supported by short videos, to do before our first one-to-one session. It will consider your dog's breed, learning history, context, environment and training steps. This would help to condition your dog in a quiet environment so you and your dog should feel more comfortable during the training session.
  • You will be contacted within a week after our first session to check on your progress, needs for training adaptations and ensure training consistency is preserved.


  • Follow up-sessions are strongly recommended to monitor adolescent puppy progress and build his/her confidence again. This training should make you the centre of their world again.
